Presentations of Uniform Act Final Rule Implementation

Cost of Comparable Dwelling § 24.403(a)(1)

Adjustment of asking price no longer allowed

Notes:

Former rule forced homeowner to become a negotiator. Change will reduce chance of appeal of replacement housing calculation. The new procedure will reduce administrative burden for acquiring agencies and give relocatees "the benefit of the doubt" when the replacement housing allowance is calculated.
